Rasberry PI is a good and cheap home computer





somo60
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video.

it's true, but I don't think I'd suggest it for just anyone wanting a regular computer.

I'm interested in something like a raspberry pi (cheap and low-power usage) for a 24 hour server. Something with more than 512meg of memory.

With their newest model they're sticking to 512meg of memory

Which one with more than 512meg of memory would you recommend?

There's quite a few with 1gig and more.

I'm guessing it's the "banana pi" as it seems to be called a Rasberry Pi clone

I have a Pi, it works fantastically for things such as 1080p video to your TV, a teamspeak server, a radio server, anything you can think of really. Windows is not necessary for a lot of these mundane tasks. however my OS has been corrupted about a million times now and I have no idea why. I guess NEVER take the SD card out.
